Hoisting & Turning the Tablets

Shawn and I used some Mesopotamian tech. We used a dolly for leverage to lift one end off the ground, then slid a steel bar under the new legs (seen in the pict above going front to back along the floor)- then a few more bars and it rolls along easily. We rolled each one under the hoist and picked them from the easel, spun it around, and laid it back down, then rolled it back and went to the next one. Everything worked as planned, and both of us managed not to get fingers crushed or backs tweaked.
Tomorrow I’ll refine the tape job a bit further, then mix cabosil (milled glass) with five minute epoxy to grout the gaps between the tiles. This may take more than a day as it will be gooey and fussy business. Glue sniffing alert!
